Classic Chinese Style
Lucky Babies is not exactly original visually speaking give the many other Chinese-inspired games on the market. That being said, fireworks and gold pillars always make quite an impact and there is a lot to look at in this game.
Another element that we loved was how well-integrated the reels were within the background. The sound effects in Lucky Babies are very old-school and gamblers will not have to suffer through an endless Chinese tune in the background as they spin the reels. This might sound like a detail, but one that we deeply appreciated nonetheless.
Let the Fireworks Show Begin
Lucky Babies is played on 5 reels with 20 paylines and with a simple command bar at the bottom of the screen to control it all. Adjust your settings at will and play either turn-by-turn or by activating the autospin mode to speed it all up. Each winning spin also unlocks a classic mini game, where guessing the colour of a hidden card will double your latest reward in an instant.
Overall, Lucky Babies is a very intuitive and beginner-friendly slot game. The low volatility makes each spin likely to unlock a small cash prize, which is also great for newcomers eager to see some results on the reels. Largest prizes, on the other hand, were a little tougher to get to for us. If you play all-in, you are looking at a maximum reward of 500 credits in the Lucky Babies base game, which is decent but not exceptional compared to other slots. The babies are obviously the most valuable symbols of the game, on top of the classic card icons. Patience is key here, and a good knowledge of the bonus features won’t hurt either.
Get as Much Help as You Can
Look no further than the temple symbols in Lucky Babies, as these wild cards can appear anywhere and have the power to replace the basic icons to boost your chances to win big. Besides, temple combinations on their own can unlock a big win of 1,500 extra credits.
Now that we have found the wilds, you must be looking for the scatters. In Lucky Babies, the rockets play this role and can unlock extra prizes going up to 20 times your total bet in any position on the reels. The rockets still have to be present from the leftmost reel to count as a valid combination, though. On top of your cash prize, you will score 8 free spins where all 4 baby symbols turn into wilds for as long as the reels keep moving.
More Challenging Than You Might Have Imagined
Lucky Babies is a slot game that demands that potential players risk big in order to truly have a chance to unlock decent cash rewards. The basic paytable is short and the game’s low volatility makes the more interesting symbols, that is to say the 4 babies, tough to line up. You will have to rely on the wilds to increase your chances to win big as well.
Overall, Lucky Babies is a fun game for risk-takers but beginners might want to focus on more accessible slots after all. Phantoms Mirror from has basically the same gameplay, with a higher volatility, which could attract a larger audience in the end.
